Introduction to the National Blue Bay Remediation Action Plan in China

Ecological degradation has inhibited sustainable development along the coast of China. To counter this, the State Oceanic Administration (SOA) of China has implemented the Blue Bay Remediation Project for bay restoration as one of the strategies to build a strong marine nation by a process of integrated coastal-zone management. With the overall goals of pristine water, a green coast, clean beaches, beautiful bays and islands clearly defined, the restoration of 66 bays will be funded (about USD$48-64 million for each bay), starting with 16 bays in 2016. This project can be described as a milestone for China, as the marine environment has never before attracted such attention. Such a huge remediation project should provide an example for the rest of the world to follow.
